No journalist has chronicled the tragedies of the Israelis and the Palestinians so exhaustively, so authoritatively - or so controversially - as Robert Fisk, the Independent’s correspondent in the region for 25 years. No US president has entered the White House carrying so much hope of peace and progress in the region as Barack Obama. Yet how much has the Nobel prize-winning icon of reconciliation actually delivered? And how much objectivity has the world’s media brought to its coverage of his Middle-Eastern initiatives? This unique anthology of six years of reporting and analysis allows you to re-examine a crucial period of history by following it episode by episode, through the ferociously clear-sighted eyes of one of the great foreign reporters of our times.
